    Books I Might Actually Read in 2009 (First Draft)

    A great book should leave you
    with many experiences,
    and slightly exhausted at the end.
    You live several lives while reading it.
    ~ William Styron

    If I focus on reading more books, I read more books. How about you? Is there a pile of books you have been meaning to read, a list on tattered paper, a library hold queue?
